    THE RANT.US ^ | DECEMBER 10, 2004 | MATT GRILLS
    About this time of year I start to feel like crap. The holidays arrive, and along with hideous plastic illuminated Santas and creepy blue icicle lights returns the painful memory of Grandpa’s last Christmas. I remember it well. You see, I wasn’t there. I volunteered to work at the newspaper that day because a) I needed extra money, b) I wanted to score bonus points with the boss and c) I figured no one would miss me. Back then, in my early 20s, family gatherings seemed more an obligation than times to be treasured. How I wish I’d gone. It’s...

    A sassy classic Ralphie, the lamp, the BB gun and why we love them Every year at this time we get to unwrap a gift package filled with red cabbage, BBs and fishnet stockings. It's the movie "A Christmas Story," arguably America's favorite holiday film. The 90-minute picture celebrates its 21st anniversary this year, happily planted in the middle of our pop traditions. In 2003, more than 38.4 million viewers tuned into the 24-hour "A Christmas Story" TV marathon, said the film's director, Bob Clark, by phone as he sat next to a special lamp in his Los Angeles office....

    The far right has made startling gains in regional elections in Germany as former communists made advances around Berlin, but parties of the centre clung to power with reduced support. The anti-immigrant Nationalist Democratic Party (NPD) won 9 per cent of the vote in Saxony, almost equal to the vote for the Social Democrats of the Chancellor, Gerhard Schroder. The Party of Democratic Socialism (PDS) took 28 per cent of the vote in Brandenburg, its best ever showing in a state election. Eastern German resentment at high unemployment and welfare cuts undermined support for Mr Schroder's Social Democratic Party (SPD)...

    You'd think the details would be scorched into a veteran's memory like a cattle brand: ducking gunfire, seeing someone die in battle, bracing against a blast's concussion. Who could forget? Yet such memories not only blurred over time in one classic psychological study of soldiers, but mutated too. Old recollections faded; new mental pictures took over. Whole new chunks of personal history materialized from the muck of memory. "People went from, `Yes, I saw one friend killed,' to `I saw no friends killed,' to `I saw two friends killed,' to `I saw three friends killed,'" said Dr. Andy Morgan, a...

    WASHINGTON, June 7 — Former President George H.W. Bush said that although he clashed President Ronald Reagan on a number of issues, particularly the economy, he always respected the 40th president, who he said ultimately influenced a number of policies put forth by his son, President George W. Bush. "He's always been a Reagan admirer," Mr. Bush said of his son in an interview on Monday on NBC's Today Show. "I think when you see them fighting for the same principles," — he cited tax cuts — the two presidents appear to share "a certain common ground." The former president,...

    05/07/04 -- For the first time, UCLA neurobiologists have pinpointed a region of the brain called the anterior cingulate as responsible for retrieving and storing distant memories. Published in the May 7 edition of Science, the findings may suggest new ways of treating memory disorders, including Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. "Scientists have long understood that the hippocampus processes recent memory, but we did not know where the brain housed our oldest memories," explained Dr. Alcino Silva, principal investigator and professor of neurobiology, psychiatry and psychology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. "We knew that the hippocampus...

    Memories of 2000 energize Dem organizers By Ron Fournier, AP Political Writer April 27, 2004 ST. LOUIS -- Armed with Palm Pilots and a $95 million budget, Democratic organizers hope to exploit voters' anger toward President Bush and the disputed outcome of the 2000 election to produce a record-breaking Nov. 2 turnout. They're doing it the old-fashioned way -- knocking on doors and registering voters -- with information-age technology, such as the hand-held computers carried street-to-street by canvassers. "There's going to be people crawling out of the woodwork to vote against Bush after what happened in 2000 and what he's...

    While we're slip-sliding around these frozen streets and the groundhog remains in his cozy den for at least another day or two, we harken back to the old days of sled-riding, or coasting, on the same, though not so crowded, roadways. Morgantown's hilly terrain has always been a blessing for winter recreational activity, in particular the free sledding on snow-covered slopes. The practice dates back as far as records are kept and since the city has had improved streets.For many decades the city designated "coasting streets." Lists of those basically closed to vehicular traffic during snowy times were published in...

Bush critics will hail Mr. O'Neill as a truth-teller, White House aides are already calling him a back-stabber. In fact, Mr. O'Neill is a relic. The man I broke bread with was clearly a product of the Nixon and Ford administrations, in which he had served, and simply hadn't adapted to the post-Reagan Republican Party.</p>

The brothers have come together each year since the youngest of the three — Leroy Preston — was born in 1930. The brothers live within a mile of each other just as they have most of their lives. Sons of Dewey J. and Annie Preston, the Preston family has grown from a family of five siblings during the Great Depression years to more than 50 families today. The family added six step-siblings along the way after their mother died...

    Recovered memories nearly destroyed the Dyer family. Hayley, now 28 years old, started seeing a child psychotherapist for depression during her GCSE year. In hospital for treatment, she began cutting her arms and legs. Four years later, her first "memories" of abuse were "recovered" during therapy. "There was a lot of pressure to remember my childhood. I was consumed with how I was feeling and couldn't remember anything clearly," she said. "To them, that was a sign I was repressing abuse. I was starting to recover memories of being abused, first by my uncle and later mum and dad." Her...

If your family is anything like mine, a few people are loosening their belts or unbuttoning their pants to breathe easier while eating an unnatural amount of food in one sitting. The most self-aware eaters just admit their gluttony and wear sweat pants with elastic waists to the feast. Everyone clamors to heap the prized dish, the family favorite you look forward to all year, onto already full plates. It's that special recipe passed down through generations - a creamy vegetable casserole, fluffy pumpkin bread, homemade applesauce. Or baked cheese grits. Yes, you heard that right. In my...

I think about how they missed seeing their children grow. How they were robbed of weddings and falling in love. How even life's small pleasures, like baseball or a beautiful day, were senselessly stolen from these innocents, and how their loved ones were also...

A tooth from the mouth of The King himself is being auctioned on eBay. The tooth was in the possession of Presley's former fiancee, Linda Thompson, until it went to the Elvis Presley Museum. The museum later sold the tooth. The auction also includes a lock of Presley's hair that was saved from his haircut upon joining the military and a gold record for "Love Me Tender."

But as the U.S. Marines begin pulling south, handing control over to the Army, many say their lasting memory will be the jubilant people who came running out to thank them as they rolled through the adobe villages - many unchanged since biblical times - and the crumbling streets of Saddam Hussein's neglected cities. ``It has...

    Everyone, may I tell a story? It deals with patriotism. On November 13, 1978, a quite typical pair of parents brought their then-ten year old boy to Manhatten to show him around the city of his birth. The boy was fascinated, and, in the modern parlance, "blown away" by the huge buildings and the lights and the noise. Such things were almost beyond his comprehension, having grown up in a sedate suburb an hour to the north. He thrilled to the subway, reveled in the cultures he saw in Little Italy and Chinatown and Harlem. He lit candles at St....

    There’s a direct connection between one’s age and how soon Christmas gets here. For children, it’s excruciatingly slow in arriving. The week before Christmas is the longest time of the year. Little wonder so many succumb to the temptation of cracking open a gift or two and oh-so-carefully rewrapping them. For adults, Christmas comes much too soon. There’s not enough time, and at the last minute we remember something we should have done but now it’s too late and we pledge to be better organized next year. For most of us, this is an annual vow. I’m one of those...
